Download Hour1 Download Hour2The Bush Cheney Republican era has been one of gangster wars, unrestrained corporate greed and criminality, surveillance, repression, lies and torture - all cheered on by a media dominated by bellicose bullies. Some characterize this as aberrant, but it is aberrant only in its excess - it is the ultimate expression of a state based on hierarchies of dominance, that worships competition and power - from the international to the personal. Its institutions break people to its yoke from childhood; its rulers give lip service to democracy but despise it in fact. From questions of war and peace to schoolyard bullies - the template is the same.
